Eternal Bond of Rakhi – Handmade with Love!!

Dear Folks!!

Its festival time…its Rakhi time. This is a very special bond between a sister and a brother that has been there since ages. Both siblings, no matter how far off they are geographically or even emotionally, are never able to surpass the gravity of this knot. It is a festival of love and protection that a sister receives form her brother in exchange of loads of love and affection. Not only those related in blood, those who may be biologically unrelated but have the same feel and connection, celebrate this festival with a great zeal.

Drenched in its colors and sharing same love and affection with my brothers, here are a few Rakhi pieces that I made.

Hello everyone!!

Monsoons are here and so is the time for nature to unravel its beauty and color. Any direction where my eyes roll, I can see hues of green and blue and white and all the color basket of mother earth.

Inspired by those here is a collection of gift envelopes that I made for an order…

In these two, I have used bee hive quilling technique to fill the gifts and the hearts.

Here are few pieces wherein I have used random shapes (except loose coils and tear drops) to bring up the designs.

Last but certainly not the least… a peacock feather on a blue envelope. I made this one to symbolize the monsoons and rains and the serenity this weather brings along…
